Earlier today, former NFL defensive tackle and now NFL Network Analyst Warren Sapp hinted that former New Orleans Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey was the whistle blower in the Saints bounty scandal.

Sapp, who is just as outspoken today as he was as a player, took to twitter with the declaration that he was told who the informant was. When a follower responded with Shockey’s name, Sapp responded:

BINGO! RT @elnicastro: Shockey..? RT QBKILLA: Just Heard Who The Snitch Was

— Warren Sapp (@QBKILLA) March 21, 2012


That’s a an extremely bold statement and accusation from Sapp, and to do it on Twitter in a very informal way is extremely unprofessional. Shockey, of course, denied Sapp’s tweet, and had a little back and forth discourse with him on Twitter, like athletes tend to do. Shockey’s former Giants teammate, Michael Strahan, came to Shockey’s defense. If you remember, Strahan and Sapp verbally sparred through the media at the height of their careers, long before the idea of Twitter had been spawned.

It really is surprising that Sapp would be so quick to same something, especially shortly after the commissioner’s office laid down the punishments to Sean Payton, Gregg Williams and Mickey Loomis. Not only that, it is kinda shocking the NFL would be okay with someone that works for their network leaking out any information of their investigation if it were true. I guess time will tell, maybe, if Sapp’s words are that of hearsay, or actually factual.
